Cargo calculations All commodities are sold by weight and this means weight in air. The term « weight » in general practice has been accepted as being the value secured when an object is weighed in air This weight or « weight in air » is often converted to « weight in vacuum » by the application of an air buoyancy correction (vacuum factor) 17 .

kg/lit).Density and kg/m3 in air Density is defined as « mass per unit volume ». weighed in the absence of air Density varies as temperature changes and is therefore expressed at a specific temperature (15°C) Density is sometimes referred to as « true density » or « density in vacuum » and will consequently give us « true mass » . density is the weight of a unit volume of the substance. expressed in direct terms of mass and volume (kg/m3. In simple language.
Density and kg/m3 in air The conversion between true density and apparent density can be carried out with table 56. m3 Calculations of quantity by means of kg/m3 will give apparent mass (weight) instead of true mass (weight) 27 . The most commonly encountered HC fluids need a negative correction of 1.1 kg/m3.

Volume and density corrections Both factors are based on the same physical phenomenon. Fluids or solids expand when heated but the mass or weight remains unchanged => the density decreases Relation between change in temperature and change in volume is expressed by the coefficient of volume expansion 39 .

Cargo documentation B/L is the most important cargo document Enables the cargo receiver to assess if the proper quantity has been discharged Before departure from the loading terminal the shipmaster should ensure that the B/L quantities accurately represent the cargo loaded The master should be sure that cargo calculation records made at loading and discharge are properly prepared 109 .
The Bill of Lading has three functions. the name of the ship and the name of the cargo receiver. It is: The shipmaster's receipt for cargo loaded A document of title for the cargo described in it Evidence that a Contract of Carriage (such as a voyage charter party) exists 118 . It details the type and quantity of cargo loaded.Bill of Lading A Bill of Lading is a document signed by the shipmaster at the port of loading.
the shipmaster agrees to the quantity of cargo loaded In some circumstances. 119 . By signing the Bill of Lading. the shipmaster may be expected to issue a Letter of Protest at the loading port.Bill of Lading By signing the document. where the Bill of Lading quantities do not match the ship's figure. the shipmaster attests to the apparent good order and condition of the cargo loaded.
Bill of Lading Whoever possesses the Bill of Lading rightfully owns the cargo. Should a cargo be sold before it reaches its destination. 120 . The old practice of issuing three original Bills of Lading has been largely superseded and now it is common to find only one being issued. the Bill of Lading must be endorsed by the original cargo buyer to show the new cargo owner.
as an alternative to presenting the original Bill of Lading to the ship master. Accordingly.Bill of Lading Due to delays in banking or trading chains. a receiver may issue a Letter of Indemnity (LOI) to the ship. 121 . an endorsed original is not always to hand at the discharge port.

Its purpose is to provide an agreed statement of facts relating to the timing of events and delays during the ship's port call and is used to facilitate demurrage claims.Time Sheet The Time Sheet records all salient port-times. 130 . from a ship's port entry until final departure.
